second term, if only he can overcome some major diplomatic hurdles. as the u.s. moved closer to military action, president obama interrupted his deliberation over syria to mark an historic milestone, the 50th anniversary of martin luter king's "i have a dream" speech. the words belonged to the ages. >> unmatched in our time. >> reporter: it was one of the only few public appearances for the president, who has little time to spend away from the white house. any decision to strike syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons is growing more complicated by the day. over at the u.n., syria's ambassador sounded the alarm and accused rebels of launching their own gas attacks. >> we are in a state of war, preparing for the worst scenario. >> accusing russia of blocking u.n. action. >> we cannot be held up in responding by russia's continued intrance jens at the united nations. >> the british may require the u.n. to present its evidence. >> it is understandable that people want to see what the u.n. inspectors say. >> reporter: a white house official sell the president is spending a lot of time
in for piers tonight. we want to well ccome our cnn viewers tonight in the u.s. and around the world there is breaking news in the show down with syria. president obama making a case for a military strike possibly. he says there is clear proof the regime was behind the use of deadly chemical weapons. the president also says he has not yet made a final decision on his military options, but he certainly appears to be moving closer and closer to using force. >> in no event are we considering any kind of military action that would involve boots on the ground, that would involve a long-term campaign, but we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only syria but others around the world understand that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban. >> we'll have the very latest developments this hour including graphic video of a new chemical attack. and is the president doing the right thing if he goes at it alone? will it mean for america if he does? i'll talk to the former chief of the united nations weapon
when they call. we address the calls accordingly. we tend to use the numbers favorably. >> back to what this chief said, i certainly understand the fact that staffing drives a lot of this and i think it would be useful for us given where we are in terms of staffing to have a conversation of what would it take in terms of resources to get to the right amount of staffing prior to 18 if that's where we are now and talking about making changes that could expand hours i'm sure this community could be very interested in working with the police department to get to that point, 2018 is a long time. but i think that to expedited the right result with staffing, there are things we can do right now. we are undermining our own efforts to grow the economy and hopefully we don't have to wait to have those conversations. >> okay. berry, did you want to say something? >> supervisor really hit on it fairly quickly as well. that is i was just going to ask chief sur if there is anything that our industry can do to expedited the staffing and the resources that might be needed to help in light of the econom
a worldwide travel alert for all u.s. citizens. it is taking the extraordinary precaution of closing 21 embassies and consulates across the middle east and africa. what are you finding out? >> credible and serious, it goes beyond that. u.s. officials telling us this is more, more than the normal stream of chatter they get about potential attacks. they have been following a stream for months now in yemen. in the last few days it grew. it became more mature, in their words. more specificity. that has led to the state department taking the action of shutting down the embassies across the region. there is particular concern about the u.s. embassy in yemen through about next tuesday. concerns about all u.s. embassies across the region. we are coming to a series of holy day as the islamic month of ramadan ends. they believe tensions will be rising. there is some difference of opinion within the u.s. intelligence community how much of this is just about yemen and how much is about the region as a whole, but no difference that it is very serious. >> the 3rd and 6th of august. those are critical

like israel and turkey and jordan, and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. we're not considering any open-ended commitment. we're not considering any boots on the ground approach. what we will do is consider options that meet the narrow concern around chemical weapons. >> washington had been banking on the u.k. to assist in a strike on syria, but the british parliament said no, we're not going along with that. they voted against military action. we still have france and turkey with us, but the arab league says they will not back retaliatory military strike, denying obama the valuable cover that he thought he was going to get. earlier this afternoon after meeting with the president and the national security council, secretary of state john kerry delivered the administration's most powerful statement to date on this matter. >> we know that the regime has used those weapons multiple times this year. we know that for three days before the attack, the syrian regime's chemical weapo

"breaking, two explosions in the white house, and barack obama is injured." the message went to "ap's" 1.9 million twitter followers and spread like a virus. retweeted almost 5,000 times within a minute. but it was a fake.

but the international norm against the use of chemical weapons needs to be kept in place. and nobody disputes or hardly anybody disputes that chemical weapons were used on a large scale in syria against civilian populations. we have looked at all of the evidence and we do not believe the opposition possessed nuclear weapons or chemical weapons of that sort. we do not believe that given the delivery systems using rockets that the opposition could have carried out these attacks. we have concluded that the syrian government and if so there need to be international consequences. we are consulting with allies and international community. i have no interest in open ended conflict in syria. we have to make sure that when countries break international norms that they are held accountable. i think it is important that if, in fact, we make a choice to have repercussions for the use of chemical weapons then the assad regime involved in a civil war will receive a strong signal that it better not do it again. and that doesn't solve all the problems inside of syria. and, you know, it doesn't obviously end the death

you. and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. there is a lot going on in the news today. >>> we're going to start here in new york city where the united nations has today called an emergency session to convene the security council of the u.n. on an emergency basis late today to respond to what looks like it may have been the largest chemical weapons attack in the world since saddam hussein gassed his own people back in 1988. and looks like is the key phrase here. it's hard to prove. it is hard to tell conclusively when chemical weapons have been used especially if you are trying to tell from a distance. in that iraq case it took four years for experts to confirm that chemical weapons were, in fact, used then. physicians for human rights is one of the first groups to get into the site. they collected soil samples and tested them. the soil samples did show trace evidence of the elements that sarin gas breaks down into over time. and with those soil samples they were able to conclude that saddam hussein had used sarin and also mustard gas, like from wor

what happened here with syria's news these days. investors are on edge over the possibility of a u.s. military strike on syria. any time we have geopolitical or war-related issues, you're going to see investors hit the sell button and pile up on assets that are more safe. it's the reason that investors were buying up gold and treasuries and then you go ahead and roll into the market's already nervous about when the fed is going to pull back on its stimulus. so you factor in any type of unrest in the mideast, it just adds to the anxiety. oil prices closing up 3%, closing at $109 a barrel. syria is ranked 32nd among global producers but the concern is there could be this risk of a spillover, if neighboring countries get involved. if we could see a ripple effect, we could see oil prices rise even more and that could translate to higher gas prices for consumers, john, who are already watching their pennies. >> all right affecting us here, allison kosik. >> the obama administration sounding more hawk-like by the day. it's not waiting for inspectors to conclude whether syria killed 1,300 p

. >> 50 years later, extraordinary. of course, also extraordinary events ahead of us. unfortunately, perhaps, our nation called into conflict again in the coming days. we'll talk about syria in a minute. we look back at this speech and rank this speech probably as one of the greatest in american history. it's easy to forget 50 years later that a lot of people didn't want martin luther king to deliver this speech including jfk who tried to get him to call the civil rights march and speech off. he refused and kennedy was left with no option but to support this speech and the rest, as they say, is history. >> it is. president kennedy watched the speech being carried live on the three television networks. his remark after it was finished was he is damn good. one master of oratory understood it. i would argue that what dr. king said today 50 years ago was the most important piece of american oratory from the gettysburg address through our own time. it redefined what it meant to be an american. it carried forward what jefferson started and what lincoln ratified and what king was urging us

with 4:00 in the morning but they have 40,000 police officers in the city. it's a resource issue for us at least for right now having a conversation because the daytime people where the most people have been dying for beat officers, officers on foot, officers on bicycles, school resource officers . if the hours were stretched, it would stress our resources that much later into night to cover those extra hours making this a 24 hour time like new york is. right now it's not a conversation that we are in a position to have. >> so i understand there is going to be some policing training. >> we have plans to be full staffing by 2018. >> you have a question? >> it's more of just a comment going along with the 4 a.m. legislature. i know you said you are short on resources, it's also something to consider the standpoint of club employees. i work the bar staff and ride a bicycle. if a show goes really late and the bars let out at 130 and all these massive people and it's an issue of safety for employees also along with patrons. i know you mentioned your club gets out at 4:00. we are next to you
